    Dnt worry too much abt the test strips .... I tried everything in the market, even the ones on amazon. They was no difference between 5$ amazon one or the 20$ ones.

    If you are pregnate ...you pee on any stick it's postive. That's how it works.

    I agree with rosenav ! Any pregnancy test strip works and does the same way. The only difference being the level of hCG it can detect. The expensive ones can detect less amount also which will be there before missing your period. Obviously most women test only after atleast 1 day of missed period by which time the hCG which doubles every 2days will reach a level that any test can detect.

    My suggestion would be to buy less expensive ones Dollar Store ones. Buy atleast 3-4 and test twice before you go to the doctor. Make sure you have atleast 2-3 days of gap between the tests and it take 2 days for hCG to rise in your urine.

    One more thing is unlike OPK where you need to compare the colour, here it is easy since you only have to check whether or not there IS a line so a digital one is not really worth investing in .

    Good luck and baby dust to you.

    Most of the home pregnancy test are reliable. If you really the need the confirmation, then you should go for the blood test. If home pregnancy test show positive, then you are pregnant. IF you want to double check before you go to OB/GYN then go for the blood test.
